A count of 157 Brent Geese included at least two dark/bellied, an adult and a juvenile. A noticeable feature of the day was the small passage of Gannets with the first being seen at first light when a group of 4 glided down the east side on the rising tide. Common Scoter numbers are greatly diminished with only 5 birds being recorded together in a small party that appeared on the sea at the north end. The eiders continue to remain with 4 birds - 2 females & 2 males being recorded.
It was good to see the Short-tailed Field Vole population doing well and at least 4 nests with young were seen along with several adults.
